A couple of days ago, the Australian shared a collage of her before and after pictures. The first picture was taken in 2015 when she was preparing for the World Beauty Fitness and Fashion competition. Explaining her rigorous workout routines during the WBFF event, she wrote, “I was 100% guilty of following the ALL OR NOTHING approach. Honestly, it’s pretty horrible when I reflect back on some of the extremes I used to go to”.

She added, “I was eating cooked plain fish at 4 am Honestly everything about my first comp prep was excessive”. However, Dillon realized that her dietary habits were not sustainable. So, she decided to be “kinder” to herself by adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Interestingly, the other picture in the collage shows her transformation after 8 years of leading a healthier routine. “I am proud to say I am constantly enjoying and refining the lifestyle I am living day to day and could not be happier”, added Dillon. Tweaking her strict dietary regime, Dillon now finally enjoys a “kinder” lifestyle.
